Should Deepika Padukone go to Nagpur to promote her film, asks Congress
The Congress slams BJP for criticising actress Deepika Padukone's JNU visit, and wondered if the Bollywood star should visit Nagpur (RSS headquarters) "to promote her film". 

"This is what this government is all about. They have reduced to this level that if an actress supports the protest they will tweet against her, run social media campaigns against her, will boycott her film, will call it a film promotion activity. Where should she go to promote (the film)? Should she go to 'Sangh Mukhyalaya' at Nagpur?," Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera while speaking to the media said.
